How much should I charge to write a video game treatment?

I've been asked by a video game company to write a story treatment for a licensed game. This is a new area for me, and I'm wondering if there are any mefites who've done this kind of work and can give me an idea of what this entails and what I could consider a fair price for doing so.

The Writer's Guild has been moving into videogames (albeit slowly) and they may be a decent resource.

I actually am in the industry and know a few people I could ask - memail me details if you want. What kind of game, what platform, etc, will probably be relevant.

Contact the chaps (Alec, John, Jim and Kieron, particularly Kieron), they do a lot of writing in that area and should have a good idea.
